Star Wars, Boba Fett
A Practical Man
On the surface, it seems like just another routine contract for Boba Fett and his Mandalorian commandos, but the mystery client who hires them to start a small war is more dangerous than any of them can possibly imagine. When the Yuuzhan Vong invasion force sweeps into the galaxy, the Mandalorians find they're on the wrong side-fighting for an alien culture that will bring about the end of their own.
Now Fett has to choose between his honor and the survival of his people. Since he' s a practical man, he's determined help the resistance beat the Yuuzhan Vong--even if it means working with a Jedi agent. Trouble is, no one trusts a man with Fett' s reputation. So convincing the New Republic that they're fighting on the same side is a tall order. Denounced as traitors, Fett's Mandalorians need to stay one step ahead of their Yuuzhan Vong paymasters-and the Republic who sees them as collaborators with the most destructive enemy the galaxy has ever faced. . . .
